English term or phrase:funny fitters' hats
Apparently in the business there is a common name for a welder's cap:
"Welder’s caps, commonly called *** funny fitters’ hats ***, are a popular and necessary piece of personal protective equipment."
Is there anything similar used in industry in Spanish speaking countries? (I don't suppose they would be "gorras divertidas...")
In answer to your question, it definitly would not be ´gorras divertidas´.

máscara de soldar
Explanation: All I could find on espanol.yahoo.com were references to *máscaras de soldar*, with occasional variations such as *para casco" and *con visor alzable/levantable*. This does not mean that there is no slang term, but it's unlikely that it would be a direct translation from English.
máscara de soldar / para casco / con visor alzable
